    The Road to Revelstoke

    August 28, 2017 in Canada

    We have a long drive ahead of us, and on the way we stopped at a tourist trap known as Hell's Gate. This is a natural phenomenon of narrows of a river, where the salmon surge upstream. They needed some assistance as in the 1910s, the worker's in their wisdom used some blasting to clear some rocks and almost knocked out the salmon industry of the area. A salmon ladder was built to assist.

    We caught the AirTram (really a short gondola) to the floor of the area, and crossed a suspension bridge....

    Interesting, but we need to Ep motoring...

    We arrived at Kamloops, which is a meeting of two rivers, and decided it was time for dinner...we found a great restaurant (Earl's Kitchen & Bar), and had a great meal. We later found this was a small chain of restaurants, not that you'd know, so will look out for them again!

    Wretched Revelstoke our destination for the night at about 9:30 pm, and checked into the dodgiest hotel ever.. Walls paper thin, no hot water in the shower! Paul nearly broke his to on the leg of the bed, which seemed to be some improvised gadget! Ugh!

    Stanley Park, Vancouver

    August 28, 2017 in Canada

    On disembarking, we encountered the least efficient rental car operation we have ever come across. 2 hours of waiting, two agents, extremely slow. Ugh! Eventually, we got our vehicle. We ordered a 4WD, expecting a Jeep or similar to what extent have at home. No, they offered a RAV4 equivalent, not much good for three big adults and lots for luggage. Eventually, they recognised the problem, and gave us a "mini-an" -it was a Dodge Caravan Crew, a seven seater people mover. At least every could get our luggage in.

    We took a drive to Stanley Park,as when we returned, we would not have a car, so it was easier. The dy was glorious, and so much warmer than we had for the previous ten dys or so. We drove to an area of Totem poles, there were mny of different styles and clans. We went to a lookout for Lion's Gate Bridge, and caught a pic of a prop plane as it flew over.

    From there we headed out of town, through the Downtown East section, a bit of a seedy area of homelessness, drugs and prostitution - a little disconcerting.

    we had a long drive ahead of us, and made a few stops on the way...more to follow...
